Colder months make us more tired and sluggish — so get outdoors
Many people feel tired and sluggish during cold months.
This is due to the lack of sunlight, which disrupts our sleep and waking cycles.
- Get outdoors in natural daylight as much as possible
- Get a good night’s sleep — go to bed and wake up at the same time every day
- Calm down with exercise or meditation — stress has been shown to make you feel tired
- You are more likely to get a cold in winter, so make sure your immune system is boosted
- You can help prevent colds by washing your hands regularly. This destroys bugs that you may have picked up from touching surfaces such as light switches and door handles.
